It has been said that “location, location, location” are the most important words in real estate … and that could be true.
Here’s a few more keywords to consider:
Duration: Most people tend to stay in a home or condo for about five to seven years. So this could bring a day care or elementary school into consideration.
Job: In this day and age, good health and a good job seem to go hand-in-hand. But you know what? That doesn’t necessarily equate to a great credit score. Please contact me for some excellent tips about how to establish credit and maintain an excellent credit score!
Down payment: This has become the biggest hurdle for many buyers. Do not feel like you have to save 20 percent down before buying a home! Quite the contrary, 10 percent is awesome and 5 percent is good — and there “Zero Down” programs available in some parts of East Tennessee. Let me suggest how to find them.
Gift funds from a relative also can make a world of difference!
Contact me and let’s find your best options and move forward. If that’s a credit restoration program, so be it.
One thing’s for sure: The older I get, the faster I realize how quickly 12 months goes by. Your housing situation can be totally different by then!
